Huntingdon Racing Tips: Tap N Go Leo likely to improve

The runners prepare to take a hurdle at Huntingdon

Timeform's Tony McFadden highlights a Nap and Next Best selection at Huntingdon on Monday.

Huntingdon Nap - 15:05 - Back Tap N Go Leo

Tap N Go Leo showed ability in bumpers, winning one of his two starts in that sphere, and he made a promising start over hurdles when third at Warwick in January, sticking to his task well in that two-mile-three-furlong event and shaping like a stayer.

He then saw things out strongly when getting off the mark over an extended three miles and a furlong at Catterick a month later, appreciating the much longer trip as he forged five and a half lengths clear up the run-in.

It's still early days in his career and he remains unexposed over staying trips so he can take another step forward to make a winning start in handicap company, with an opening BHA mark of 121 likely to prove lenient in time.

Huntingdon Next Best - 15:35 - Back Icaque de l'Isle

Most of these have some sort of question to answer, including Icaque de l'Isle who has yet to win in Britain and was below his best at Exeter last time. However, it's probably worth overlooking that effort as it came in a good race for the grade (three of the first five home won their next start) and he was held up in a contest that was dominated by those who raced prominently.

This isn't such a competitive affair and Icaque de l'Isle can run off a 3 lb lower mark in a lesser grade.

Icaque de l'Isle won in France for his previous connections and has a couple of pieces of form for this yard, including a runner-up effort on his return this season, that suggest he's up to defying his current mark.

Back Icaque de l'Isle @ 4/15.00 on Betfair Sportsbook
